Gian, 29 Sep 2014Z2 owners. Is this phone a worth it buy? What is the pros and cons of this phone bcoz im gonna... moreThe phone is amazing. For me, it's one of the most beautiful phones out there after the HTC one. Also, its performance is excellent. Battery life is great. The Camera is superb. You will get the best photos taken with a smart phone.
Unfortunately, There are 2 big issues that does not make me recommend this phone.
First of all, one of the most distinguishing features of the phone is being water resistant. However, the card slot cover keeps falling off! we have 5 Xperia phones in our house and 2 of them had a loose card cover. This, of course, is a big problem since it should be water resistant.
I had SonyEricsson's Xperia Active before. It was a wonderful phone at that time, but it got damaged in water because the USB cover was not secured properly (though it was closed).
Still, Sony didn't deal with this problem and they produced a phone with a loose cover. Therefore, you should be very careful when you are next to a wet surface. Make sure all the covers are secured and hold it with care.
The second and most irritating problem is the screen ruggedness . This phone should handle falls from 1.5 meters and it has been marketed as a semi-rugged phone. However, My brother and my wife both shattered their screens after a fall from less than a meter! and of course, changing the screen will cost around USD 370!! Which is almost the price of a new phone. Also, after the screen crushed, it's not functioning at all! nothing works. So you can't use it with a shattered screen like most phones.
I have Dropped my HTC one (M7) hardly on asphalt twice and I have no problems throwing it around. My 20 months daughter plays with it and throw it around on ceramic surfaces and it didn't break. I just got some scratches on the aluminum frame.
Also, my wife had a Samsung Note 2. The screen is cracked in half from the upper right corner to the lower left corner. She dropped it in water with the crack. It was functioning badly for few months. But she was able to use it after cleaning the inner parts (without costing a dime).
Now, after 4 months, The phone just got back to life! as if nothing happened to it!
Still, the screen is cracked but the phone is functioning flawlessly.
I think those 2 issues will prevent me from getting an Xperia phone the next time I think about buying a new phone. It so sad though as I really love the Camera and design. The phone is wonderful but let's face it, who treat his phone with such delicacy? We move around here and there and we drop our phones a lot. Would you jeopardize all the money you paid for a flagship phone and lose over a cracked screen?
It's your choice!
So far everythings run smoothly~
Performance is so well.
and the design is so nice~

finechinmay, 29 Sep 2014My Z2 takes approximately 4 hours to get 100 % charge. Is it normal?? I never let the battery go down below 20% so it takes around 2-2.5 hours to get fully charged, i use wireless charging which i got free with the phone & rarely use the regular charger.
